Big Mak Blog Contest Is Officially Over

Posted on Monday, March 16, 2009

Big Mak Blog Contest Is Officially OverYesterday 12 midnight, the Big Mak Blog Contest officially closed. I would like to thank everyone who joined the contest and especially to the sponsors. I have just finished tabulating the initial scores this morning and the next step is to audit everything. The deserving contestants should win so I would make sure that everything is fair and correct.

To make my auditing of scores easier, I am asking your help to send me the URL of your twitter account, digg and URL of all blogs used in doing reviews. I want to reiterate that I am only counting points from the original (single) twitter and digg accounts. Points for comments and reviews are subject to my discretion.

Anyway, I have learned a lot from this contest and for sure my next contest would be better. I am planning to have my next contest on my birthday this October so wait for my future announcements. I hope it would be more than $200 and 100K EC credits. So to those who are interested to sponsor, hit me a comment on September.

The announcement of winners will be available on this blog on March 20, 8 P.M. Will also post some statistics in the coming days.

Here is the initial scores of the 63 contestants. Scores are not yet final.

Here they are makoy,

I did reviews, badges, and links of all sponsors in most of my blogs. All in all, aside from teh digg and twitter links below, the rest are my blogs.

Congratulatios for the great success. Wow, naabot niSherry 5000 plus points? Unbeatable!

@makoy maganda po yung contest at eto po ang suggestion ko since ang word na "makoy" ay konti pa result sa search engines

Results 1 - 10 of about 112,000 for makoy Google

then add "makoy" in your next contest title para ma establish ang more links ng site mo..

pinag aralan ko ang mga top searches na hatak ng website mo maganda ang resulta kapag sa ilang searches...

eto pa po tiyakin mo ang isang best keyword mo dapat hindi mawala!

aku building building pa lang ng blog para maging stable, kakachange ko ng system from wapsite now to blog system.

ngayon pinag aralan ko din yung ibang blog para makita ko ang maitutulong nito sa site ko na pinoy2..

Your contest gives you tons of traffic and links,, saludo ako sayu sa magandang pag organize ng blog contest.

With your contest natulungan nya ang site ko bilang isa sa small sponsors pa kasi bago lang me sa EC.

Malaki rin naitulong ng EC sa site ko. pero by following months i will get traffic from search engine searches organic traffic ang after ko na next na ma-establish.

Titiyakin ko na maganda ang resulta ng gagawin kong seo para sa blog ko...

salamat sa lahat ng nagparticipate natulungan nyo ang baguhan na tulad ko... pero magpapakaexpertu na rin aku by next few weeks..

I will try some guerrilla marketing strategy for blog optimization then bibili ako ng next domain ko ata kung ma-i-manage ko pa, for better making money online.

@webbielady naku Filipina ka pala! hehehehe just now ngayun ko lang na-realize!

@pehpot, I hope my comments is counted too.

Having headache right now. :(

Rosa said...
March 17, 2009 at 10:32 PM

Counted pala yung comments? Whew! I didn't know it. Kasi wala naman sa Blog Contest na you can earn din nang points sa comments. Hehehe! Kung alam ko lang, nagcomments ako lahat sa post mo!=D

WebbieLady said...
March 18, 2009 at 3:53 PM

Well, Makoy, I dunno how you count the points... Are my one-liners counted ba? And what is "quality"? Hmmm... am curious.. Like if you twittered and made a comment in that post informing that you have had twittered about it, what is the counting? Is it the

a.) twitter alone?
b.) Or both the twitter and the comment informing you about the twitter?

The same is true with digging... What do you count ba? Hehehe... I have my very own counting and records but I know that mine is entirely different from yours...kasi hindi makita yung tally ko sa mga tallies mo dito.

Makoy said...
March 18, 2009 at 10:16 PM

hi webbie! nice questions. I am not yet done with the auditing of the scores.

for the comments, i only count those with sense. there are some comments that are split into 5 or more. for that i only count as 1 or 2 comments.

all twitter posts are counted. a link though to my posts are required to be counted.

for the digg posts, comments in digg are not counted as i have not included it in my mechanics.

if you have submitted my post and digged it at the same time, that is 3 points. if you just digged it, it is 2 points.

hit me back if you still have questions.

haha! adik mga tao dito.. pero what? 63 contestants lang.. hehe! sana ako ung top 11. pero ang cash prize till top 5 lang diba... hehe...

my twitter account. di na ata ako nakapag digg hehe. (ata).. wala na ko sa sarili ko hehe.

Sherry said...
March 19, 2009 at 12:41 PM

tomorrow night everyone will be anxious to know! :)

Webbielady said...
March 19, 2009 at 4:49 PM


Just saw your comments Bro.. Am 100% Super Filipina but since i am NOT from Luzon, am not so good with the language you usually used. I stayed in
Makati for a year but that was it, office and condo and everyone around speaks ilonggo/hiligaynon too so i still stick with my dialect... or english.

My bet is 100% Sherry. You miscalculated Astig and Denis, those two are also strong but for me, the ultimate winner is Sherry... but Makoy will decide.

You answered my question na. No worries, you know better coz it's your contest. About the digg comments, I know that there are no points from there but I just feel my digg is kind of "dead" if I also don't leave a comment. You know me as I join here, macommentar, di ba? Ang hahaba nga ng mga comments ko ksi i got so much to say about many things... ^^

Rosa said...
March 19, 2009 at 6:40 PM

I know sherry will win the first prices! Whew! I hope i win something.. :-)

Sherry said...
March 19, 2009 at 11:29 PM

@webbielady, I am thinking first prize might be Rosa.

@rosa, we really have to open our eyes to see who's got the First Prize. LOL!

the difference of 1st score and 2nd score is 1,000points difference. That's so much.

Anyway we got to wait til 8pm to know result.

Sherry said...
March 20, 2009 at 2:11 PM

so nervous tonight get to view the result. are we able to know who like how many digg, tweet, comments, reviews, of contestants? Or just the score?
